DLNA file refresh with Synology Diskstation

Question

Our LG TV does not show files properly when a new file is added in a directory.

We have a Synology diskstation ethernet drive with DLNA and if we download a new file (in the dedicated download folder) or we copy a file from a PC to a folder, the file is not seen in the LG TV.

Sometimes it's there in few minutes, sometimes it's not visible for days! turn on&off is not working.

If we want to watch a video we need to load it on a USB stick, which is definitely not nice in 2019.

Looking at synology forums the DLNA file list should be automatically updated when a new file is added, is there any way to force refresh from LG app?

 

Thanks

I noticed the same here on my LG OLED65C97LA in the photo and video app.

Also using a Synology mediaserver, I can confirm the files are listed in other DLNA players (i.e. PlayerXtreme on my iPhone).

But my TV seems to show me a cached version which is annoying, a refresh button in the interface would be great.

I already changed the profile of my Synology NAS in the web interface (Media Server > DMA Compatibility > Device List) from "Default Profile" and "LG TV" and back without any success.

With kind regards,

It's common for most DLNA-servers - when you just put a new file into the folder used by DLNA-server, the server doesn't rehash its database used for files management. At least it doesn't immediately by default. And if after putting a new file you try to watch video from the DLNA-server on your PC with help of VLC-player, you won't see the added file too. It means, that the problem is not in your TV. For making DLNA-server "know" about a new file in its storage you have to do some extra action. For example it could be done by pressing "rescan directories" button in DLNA-server web-intetface or something like this. With my DLNA-server it helps. After this you will have to restart video-player on your TV

Other DLNA players do pick up the new files, just my LG TV doesn't.

The restarting the video player (Photo&video App) on the TV has no effect, nor a complete restart of the TV doesn't seem to help. A forced refresh in the Photo&video app would be the best solution imo.

With kind regards,

Since you can resolve it by restarting the NAS, I'm assuming the files don't get indexed properly by the NAS anymore.

Can you confirm this by getting a DLNA player for iOS or Android and adding new content, if it shows up in the App then it gets indexed properly.

Maybe the player only fetch the files when it starts. You could 'kill' the player by clicking the X above it and try to restart it. Maybe that helps.

Hello,

I have the same issue with dlna. Sometime my tv OLED65C9 doesn't refresh the content, I have already checked that my serveur is providing correctly the new files but the tv doesn't always update its cache.

When I have this issue, I stop the dlna server while the tv is displaying the "home dashboard", then I start again my dlna server  and only then the tv display the updated content.

      Hello,
      Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX. 
      Kind regards,

      Is there an LG WebOS-TV App that allows the simple play of a video file from an SMB (Windows) share. DNLA is very inconvenient, and there are no user access rights.
      I want to browse shared folders (from my NAS), select a video file, click, watch, and then delete it.

      I discovered that my LG SmartShare app could not play FLAC or M4A audio files natively from my DLNA server, so I decided to enable transcoding on the server to present MP3/WAV resources in addition to the native stream. However, the SmartShare app still doesn't display those files when browsing for audio, and I am trying to determine why.
      And now, the extreme technical detail:
      I have a shell utility, upnp-browse.sh to make HTTP calls to my DLNA server, emulating the types of calls that LG SmartShare would make:
      #!/bin/sh curl -s -d @- -H 'Content-Type: text/xml; charset="utf-8"' -H 'SOAPAction: #Browse' http://host/path/to/DLNA \ | xmllint --xpath '////Result/text()' - \ | recode html..utf8 \ | xml_pp The curl call makes a HTTP POST request with the data from stdin, which would have similar content to the following:
      <?xml version="1.0"?> <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" s:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"> <s:Body> <u:Browse xmlns:u="urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:serviceType:v"> <ObjectID>ID_PARENT</ObjectID> <BrowseFlag>BrowseDirectChildren</BrowseFlag> </u:Browse> </s:Body> </s:Envelope> The call to curl then yields an XML Response similar to the following:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" s:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/"><s:Body><u:BrowseResponse xmlns:u="urn:schemas-upnp-org:service:ContentDirectory:1"><Result><DIDL-Lite xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:upnp="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/upnp/" xmlns="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/DIDL-Lite/" xmlns:dlna="urn:schemas-dlna-org:metadata-1-0/"> <item id="ID_FILE" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1"><dc:title>Title</dc:title><upnp:class>object.item.audioItem.musicTrack</upnp:class><dc:creator>Creator</dc:creator><upnp:artist>Artist</upnp:artist><res size="######" duration="H:MM:SS.###" bitrate="1022868" sampleFrequency="44100" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/x-flac:*">http://IP:port/MediaItems/####.ext</res><res duration="H:MM:SS.###" bitrate="176400" sampleFrequency="44100" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/L16;rate=44100;channels=2:DLNA.ORG_PN=LPCM;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/LPCM/####.ext</res><res duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MP3;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/MP3/####.ext</res></item><container id="ID_FOLDER" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1" searchable="1" childCount="#"><dc:title>folder name</dc:title><upnp:class>object.container.storageFolder</upnp:class><upnp:storageUsed>-1</upnp:storageUsed></container></DIDL-Lite></Result> <NumberReturned>2</NumberReturned> <TotalMatches>2</TotalMatches> <UpdateID>3</UpdateID></u:BrowseResponse></s:Body></s:Envelope> Then the calls to xmllint, recode, and xml_pp take this data and extract the data from the Result node and format it for readability, yielding an output similar to:
      <DIDL-Lite xmlns="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/DIDL-Lite/" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:dlna="urn:schemas-dlna-org:metadata-1-0/" xmlns:upnp="urn:schemas-upnp-org:metadata-1-0/upnp/"> <item id="ID_FILE" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1"> <dc:title>Title</dc:title> <upnp:class>object.item.audioItem.musicTrack</upnp:class> <dc:creator>Creator</dc:creator> <upnp:artist>Artist</upnp:artist> <res bitrate="1022868" duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/x-flac:*" sampleFrequency="44100" size="######">http://IP:port/MediaItems/####.ext</res> <res bitrate="176400" duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/L16;rate=44100;channels=2:DLNA.ORG_PN=LPCM;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000" sampleFrequency="44100">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/LPCM/####.ext</res> <res duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MP3;DLNA.ORG_OP=10;DLNA.ORG_CI=1;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01500000000000000000000000000000">http://IP:port/MediaItems/TranscodeAudio/MP3/####.ext</res> </item> <container childCount="#" id="ID_FOLDER" parentID="ID_PARENT" restricted="1" searchable="1"> <dc:title>folder name</dc:title> <upnp:class>object.container.storageFolder</upnp:class> <upnp:storageUsed>-1</upnp:storageUsed> </container> </DIDL-Lite> Note with the sample file (item node), it contains three res nodes. The DLNA client (LG SmartShare) should select the data from the res node for the format it supports, and allow for selection of the item, but when I browse in the container which contains the item, LG SmartShare doesn't show it.
      For native MP3 files, SmartShare will show and play those items. I can provide output for native MP3 items, as well as OGG or MP4/M4A files if those would help, though they all look fairly similar. However, for native MP3 files, the first res node has a slightly different set of DLNA flags:
      <res bitrate="128000" duration="H:MM:SS.###" nrAudioChannels="2" protocolInfo="http-get:*:audio/mpeg:DLNA.ORG_PN=MP3;DLNA.ORG_OP=01;DLNA.ORG_CI=0;DLNA.ORG_FLAGS=01700000000000000000000000000000" sampleFrequency="44100" size="######">http://IP:port/MediaItems/####.mp3</res> Is my server serving something incorrectly, does SmartShare just not support multiple res nodes, or have I overlooked something?

      Hi All,
       
      I recently bought a LG Smart TV with WebOS (42LB6500) and would like to connect to my external hard disk connected over network. Here is how my home network and devices are setup.
       
      I have a high speed broadband that comes to my WiFi router (D-Link DSL 2750U) with USB support for External HDD. I have connected my Seagate Ex.HDD to this router and I am able to access the drive over WiFi on my smartphone and computer using the network path \\192.168.1.1\... Once connected I am able to use it similar to any mount location, i.e., read/write files, play media, etc., I want to do similarly with my TV, I would like to use this connected Ex. HDD as any other location and would like to achieve following two things at the least without any additional hardware Play media files on this HDD (very very important) Use the HDD as recording device for timeshift/live pause feature (important)  
      Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Regards,
      Rukmaj
